I’m that teenaged girl who has MS. You haven’t met me, but you’ve seen me around. You probably know my sister. We’re twins, and she’s the pretty one. Maybe you’ve heard about myreputation, how much I like to hook up at parties — how easy it is to get me in bed, get what you want, and forget about me after.
Forget what you think you know. I’m leaving that girl behind. College is all about new beginnings. So from now on — I’m just Cass. And the rest…it isn’t written yet. And no one else gets to write my story for me.
“Tyson Preeter doesn’t do can’t.”
That’s exactly what I want people to think when they see me. I am strong, invincible, confident, intelligent — arrogant. I’m the man who always finds a way around, over and through — until there’s nothing left. Since losing my ability to walk six years ago, I’ve relearned life. I don’t need sympathy. I don’t want charity. And I don’t do love.
It’s better this way, saves my disappointments for me, and me alone, and it saves my strength for everything I want.
But Cass Owens is about to wreck everything. She’s about to steal all of my strength away from me, because she needs it more. She’s about to break all of my rules, and break down all of my walls. She’s about to own me…completely. And I’m about to let her.
One again, I want to thank Deanna @A Novel Glimpse so much for lending me this book! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I have to say I liked this one even better than the first one, This is Falling. The writing was amazing again, but the characters were just MORE somehow. I had liked Cass and Ty a lot on the first book, but actually reading their story was amazing.
I loved that in spite of the challenges that both Cass and Ty faced, with Cass having MS and Ty being paraplegic, the story doesn’t focus on that, and doesn’t use any of those facts to define either character. That is wonderful and unique and I loved it. Instead, it uses those challenges as part of them, and parts of them that they both accept and love and don’t even “see” because they SEE the other person completely.
I really liked the romance, for a moment there I thought that there would be a lot more drama from both sides, but they were both adults who communicated and wow, that’s so rare to read about.
I would highly recommend this story… it’s so beautiful! I might have cried a bit (or a lot).
